Did you know that 74% of adults suffer from crooked teeth (malocclusion)? Many adults notice their teeth shifting in their 30s, 40s and 50s that make it more difficult to brush and floss properly. Teeth that fit together correctly last longer and are likely to lead to less costly dentistry in the future.
You may have friends or family who have decided to straighten their smile later in life. In fact, over 25% of Polo Dental patients are adults. And they're not the only ones. Stars have also opted for braces such as Tom Cruise, Faith Hill and Katherine Heigl.
Braces aren't just for kids anymore! Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve personal appearance, confidence, self-esteem, and overall quality of life. A new smile can begin today.
Equally important are the health benefits provided by orthodontic treatment. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and less likely to suffer from problems of the teeth, gums, and bones that support the teeth. Crooked and crowed teeth may contribute to periodontal disease, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. Many scientific studies have proven a strong link that exists between periodontal disease and diseases of the heart and diabetes.
GOOD NEWS! We use new techniques and appliances that greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several options. Your treatment options may include metal braces, translucent braces, lingual braces, Invisalign (transparent aligners) and SureSmile (high-tech, shorter treatment time).
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During the initial examination we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment and expected cost.
